    Pretty sure we all jelly at this point.

    edit: OH SHIT I POSTED A PONY MEME IMAGE, REPLACING IT WITH LINK: http://30.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lq...7j59o1_500.jpg

    Question, what's up with that desk/chair less than 2 feet from a giant TV screen in the 3rd photo? That would burn my eyes out in no time.

    Well. He has to find a way to prove it's his setup, IMO. Since pictures from that very PC-gaming room definitly have been floating around the interwebs before.

    It's my setup don't worry, not sure about the equipment comment though. I am in love with deftech speakers, worth every penny. They cost me about the same as the mid-range B&W speakers but sound much better for movie audio, not as good for music but I don't build a theatre room for music!

    The Denon 3803CI is plenty for me and does fantastic HDMI switching. The projector is a Mitsubishi, I won't buy any other brand. Extremely bright and vibrant and most important of all is virtually silent. In my opinion it is THE best projector on the market before you get to the $10,000+ price range, technology changes to fast to pay that much for a single piece of audio equipment. I refuse to invest in technology long term, strict business decision on my part and the fact that I am NOT a millionaire makes this hard to do anyway.

    The chair is not as close to the monitor as the picture makes it seem. It is a deep desk, 40 inch Samsung LED fits nicely.

    The PC's are a mix of clone machines with gaming video cards and Macs.

    First PC = 8 core mac pro with 16GB ram
    Second PC = Mac Mini running all of my home theater equipment
    Third PC = Quad Core clone box with ATI 5870
    Forth PC = Quad Core clone box with ATI 5870

    All monitors are Apple, I wont allow anything with Dell or HP in my home.

    You love apple monitors don't you :P I was like "what is this guy doing with so many iMacs in his "gaming" room?"

  6. #3486
    Yeah, I also get a discount through my corporate program at work on the Apple stuff. For some reason the company I work for (not affiliated with Apple) gets a nice discount.

    From an ascetic standpoint they fit nicely with the decor.

    I have to ask, this can't be for gaming only right? What do you use these computers for primarily?

    Also, that cinema room looks awesome.

    I work from home, a lot hobbies too. I do a lot of adventure riding in the mountains and desert, take A TON of video and love editing video all together.

    I like purpose built stuff I guess.

    To be honest, the setup isn't really that expensive just unique. It looks more expensive than it is because I don't employ any traditional design methods, they are not allowed in my home!

    I need to buy my own house before I do anything remotely near that.

    Welp, that's quiet. I mean, it was pretty quiet'ish imo before, but my computer is really quiet now that I put the silent-adapters on the NH-D14. Temps haven't changed much though it appears.

    Probably not.
    I can live with that.

    I didn't mind the noise in the first place. I just want to see how low volume I can get if I want to.

    Don't plug in the fans. ;p Bam. Passive cooling ftw!

  16. #3496
    Actually tried that. Thing wouldn't boot on past POST without a fan connected to the CPU_FAN_HEADER. I could just connect the rear exhaust though, I suppose.

    Something along the lines of this perhaps? A 100% passively cooled i5 2500k system.

    heheheheheh that thing makes me laugh every time I see it. XD It's SO RIDICULOUSLY HUGE! And completely blocks your main PCI-e bus lane, and just DAMN. It's ridiculous bahahahaha!

    seeing as my loudest component is the psu .. it'd be a bit pointless getting something like that :P

    looks ridiculous too >.>

    edit: is it cruel of me to love where they say: "The PC itself doesn't compromise on performance," and they're running on a h67 = no overclocking, pffft, no compromise on performance my foot :P

    edit2: as well as the obvious loss of performance (depending on what you'd use the pc for) of not having a graphics card plugged in

    It's a complete system though; the PSU is passively cooled as well.

    Although I agree about the comment regarding the performance claim. You sacrifice your GPU slot for absolute silence. Not to mention that the i5 2500k is totally wasted.
